Arroo is a townland in Rossinver parish, barony of Rosclogher. The name may be derived from Ir. áradh, ‘ladder’. Alternatively, it may be related to Welsh arro, ‘bank’. Either way, the name seems to refer to the steep slopes of Arroo Mountain which rise from the shore of Lough Melvin.   Arroo Mountain is the 498th highest place in Ireland. Arroo Mountain is the most northerly summit in the Dartry Mountains area.

Excellent views, access difficulty from the west.
Short Summary created by simon3, Harry Goodman  27 Apr 2022
Start from the east at G858 516 starA. Alternately there is another clear parking space 300m or so south up the road. Follow the distinct track across the road from the parking spot, which continues for about 500m, and then peters out amid a turf-cutting area. Continue directly west across gently rising and in parts, distinctly boggy land and then across steeper land to the top.
Start from the west at around G805 525 starB. This route known as the Arroo Trail is NOT recommended at present because a landowner has withdrawn permission.
There are fine views NE over L. Melvin and N to the Bluestacks. To the W is Truskmore, the highest of the Dartry Mountains, and further around S to the Castlegal ridge. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/407/comment/5166/
